THE EVERYDAY UTILITARIAN OBJECT, INTERPRETATION AND USAGE

JANUARY 18TH-FEBRUARY 29TH

What is the process of transformation, it’s worth wondering, of the relationship between architecture and an object’s form itself, but even its functional value as well?

To which extent and in which way does modern design affect the spaces where we live and create?

How are art and architecture connected and how does this interaction determine our everyday routine, our way of thinking and our way of conceiving things?

At the new cultural venue ‘Zeon’, four artists (George Gyparakis, Andreas Savva, Yioula Hatzigheorghiou, Alexandros Psychoulis) and an architect (Marinos Sorilos) are laying their own proposals for the objects surrounding us in our everyday life, in the private or public space.

With their works they turn towards covering primary human needs such as housing, sleep, relaxation, storage, contact with nature and the mythical world. It is about an effort to define the object, beyond its form and image, into the very necessity of its creation that also leads to the interpretation of its usage.

With their proposals they create a poetic atmosphere in our daily routine, sometimes bittersweet, when inspiration comes by observing the cruel reality. Then again, sometimes useful and/or dreamlike, when they offer mechanisms for seeking creatures of our imagination.
